Never trust a man with two first names.

The Situation: Marco Hernandez, Pablo Sandoval and Brock Holt are all on the DL and the Red Sox don’t need a fifth starter until Saturday so they have a chance to add a bat. Welcome to the bigs, Sam Travis.

Dynasty Dynamics: Checking on Some Prospect Sleepers

Ben Carsley

Bo Bichette continues to look like the real deal. Others, such as Yeyson Yrizarri, look to be in trouble.

Ah, late May, one of the more awkward times in the dynasty calendar. If your team is good, you’re likely trying to prey on would-be contenders who are realizing they need to pack it up. If your team is awful, you’re likely getting a head start on scouting the 2017 crop of prospects. If you’re stuck in the middle, well, you know you have about 6-8 weeks left to make some big decisions.

Because we’re sort of in no-man’s land, it is be a good time to look in on a few of my favorite dynasty sleepers from the “next 112” list I published in mid-March. Are the samples too small to draw super-meaningful conclusions? Of course. But since these guys were sort of on the periphery of fantasy relevance in most leagues anyway, we can be a little quicker to cut bait or invest than we would be with more-established names.

Dynasty Dynamics: What Goes Down Can Come Up

Ben Carsley

Six dynasty prospects, three different trends. Where do they stand now, a few weeks into the new season?

This one’s simple. Let’s take an early look at six dynasty prospects who had their arrows pointed down when we unveiled our rankings earlier this offseason, and look at a pair who are well on their way to resurrection, two who look pretty cooked and a couple who still fall somewhere in between. Just a check-up, really.

Also, I’m only going to write this caveat once: The samples are small. You know they’re small, because you have a firm grasp on how the calendar works. If you are reading a piece about developing trends and May and are going to say, “but small-sample size,” stop reading pieces about trends in May.
